Open for Business...


So... I'm just a wee bit excited right about now.... My Etsy shop is now open! You can have a peek here or click out my ad/linky thingy on the right. It took me hours and hours to complete, I kept procrastinating over everything, and worrying if I had this right or that right, I wanted everything perfect.... I am really happy with the result and I hope you are too!

To celebrate, let me introduce Rita....


Look at her little sailor outfit!! I adored every single minute of stitchin' this little one up, she has a tiny sailor hat ...


...her stripey skirt is trimmed with polka dot binding and a anchor and chain medallion...


...I ran a whipped running stitch around her Mary-Janes to look like some nautical rope and made her a tiny sailor collar.



Actually, as I type this I am reminded of an outfit that my Mum put me in for a wedding when I was, maybe, 10... it was complete with a sailor hat, navy jacket with white sailor collar and white skirt. Go Mum!! I loved that outfit.... I rocked that outfit... That must be where my love of all things nautical comes from!  My nautical pinterest board .

I have much more to report so I promise not to leave it too long 'til my next post. But for now, I must go 'cause a little girl with mint green hair, made of felt and fabric is calling my name ;)


Thanks for dropping by...
